Canadiens Fucale Adds Color Change To Ice Age Mask

Montreal Canadiens prospect Zach Fucale stuck with the Ice Age theme for his new mask, and normally the including of Scrat, the prehistoric cartoon squirrel chasing a nut from the animated Ice Age kids movies, would be the headline maker for this mask. Not this time, however. Painter Sylvie Marsolais of Sylabrush added a bold new layer to Fucale’s new mask by using her color-changing SubZero paint FX on the Ice Caps logo on both sides.

The new NHL franchise in Las Vegas, which will begin play in 2017-18, announced on Wednesday they have hired Dave Prior as their director of goaltending and NHL goaltender coach. News of Prior’s hiring is hardly a surprise given he worked under recently named Las Vegas general manager George McPhee with the Washington Capitals from 1997 to 2013.

If there was a surprise, it was with the dual roles announced Wednesday. According to a story last week...
